Personal Profile

These are some of my characteristics, many of which I believe can be further developed to make me a better working individual. I am open to picking up crucial skills from my peers and colleagues to overall enhance myself as a person.

  • Highly motivated and independent individual
  • Able to work under pressure
  • Strong team-player with developing leadership skills
  • Highly efficient in getting work done
  • Enthusiastic and highly eager to learn

Personal Interests

My hobbies lie in playing football, court soccer and badminton. I play street soccer regularly on Saturday mornings, and I also play field football on a weekend Sunday team. I believe exercise is important to a healthy lifestyle and it contributes to overall mental and physical well-being.

I am also proficient in playing the guitar. I teach my peers how to play the guitar when they come to me, and I sometimes arrange one-on-one sessions to facilitate their learning.  


Missions and Community work

I have embarked on two overseas mission trips with the church. They have been invaluable learning experiences for me and provided me with difference perspectives about life and culture.


  • Bangkok, Thailand. This trip, headed by my youth pastor, included a stay at a missionary couple's house and our roles included organizing a children's camp for Christian students who have been outreached by the couple. While we were there, we got to work with a team of New Zealanders who were also at the missionaries' house for a mission trip. The group of us also taught English for a day at a high-school in classes of various ages.


  • Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The trip, headed by the same youth pastor, consisted of a stay at the local missionary's house and a village orphanage, where we carried out spring cleaning work. We also brought food items and rations for the nearby villagers, and entertained the children with balloon animals. We also made an educational trip to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum where we learned about the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot's wartime atrocities.
